TLEO, LL>Supplication and Althea are stellar with the latter being an all timer.

i love the mellow feel of 1980. yet it can go from drifting through a warm opiate cloud, to Jerry fanning and going ape shit in a second (9/6/80 Sugaree for example). It kind of reminds me of how the energy would rise and fall back in the spring of 78', yet with Brent, in 1980, the parts that are not shredding, are much more fluid and cohesive. Check out the 5/10/80 Rider. Insane.

A bolt of inspiration
Jack Straw-> Franklin's- Take that to the bank
Cassidy, mellow-(earlier in the set the better)
They Love Each Other-yes indeed
The Lightning>Supplication is great.
Brent has some nifty backing vocals going as Bobby has his way with the Nassau ladies.
Much more brisk pace on the Peggy-O then in the early years of the 70's
Far From Me- Brent does not go out of the way to sell this tune like he does when he brings it back in the late 80's
Stranger-> Deal- A good combo
Althea opener-that is different!
Sailor > Saint-anywhere, anytime in my book.
Playin (with nice transition into)> Uncle John's
Nice use of cow bell to ward off East Coast rhythmic clapping phenomenon.
Send it into a no clapping please> Drums>
Space (vehicle to get to dance hall part o show)
>N.F.A > G.D.T.R.F.B> Good Lovin-[No ballad here]
any one of the above on its own became 2nd set closer material as the 80's wore on.
Talk about blowing the doors off the place.
encore: Alabama- prefer coupled with something but any variety in the encore slot is welcomed.
(Hey you can clap very quick time to Alabama!!!)
note: The thing about Nassau is you were only going there for the show -whereas it was so easy to get sidetracked in N.Y.C- plus the Islander's VET didn't feel like a maximum security prison aka -the Byrne Arena.
As mentioned- EXCELLENT SOUND ON THIS RECORDING.

Hunter, watch out. This guy's good. Really good.
Can't say much other than a great show gets a great mix to match. Well done.
The Jack Straw>Franks opener is immense.
That is all.
